Hi all,

I'm looking to play my first PBEM game of HiS. My girlfriend got this game for me for my birthday and I'm hooked. If anyone is interested please contact me. Thanks, I appreciate your noob indulgence

Yeah, sorry there wasn't room in the WGR game tonight.

Fridays are often a good night, so hopefully we can get in a game tomorrow.

Ha ha, no worries, I understand. I'm not sure if I'm available tonight but perhaps next week.

I have played several Ftf games but none by email. I am interested. What are the parameters and timelines?

I've created a game on ACTS called John Riston's game. Let me know when you've created an account and I'll sign you up.

I'd like to play. Would be my first PBEM game (of any game, not just HIS), though I have a fair amount of HIS experience, in FtF and WGR games. I created an ACTS account under the handle Colonelforbin.

I assume the latest version of VASSAL and the latest version of the HiS module will work? I know there have been version problems with TS.

Both are being used for a different PBEM HIS game I'm currently in.

The Twilight Struggle module issues with VASSAL 3.2.x are due to its usage of custom Java classes. The HIS module contains no custom code.

As noted on its module page, it's best with VASSAL 3.2.7 or newer (it will work with any 3.2.x release, but unit elimination messages will report wrong locations with older releases, due to a VASSAL bug that was fixed in 3.2.7).

I'd join if you still have a spot available. I am currently playing one other HiS PBEM with Vassal/ACTS as the Protestant. I wouldn't mind doing this again, but would be willing to manage any power. Trying to boost my own experience with HiS, not having a lot of plays under my belt.

My ACTS ID is looleypalooley.

Nope, not this game, but maybe the next one I play. She's been bugging me about playing face to face though. I'll need four more who are willing to sit through a 6+ hour wargame. Maybe I can bug some BGGers in the area...

I'd sit through in person if I lived a bit closer to Maryland. :D Consimworld I think has a few Here I Standers in that area.
